I posted this on Facebook and Google+ but decided that I should add it to my blog as well.
Below is a common sentiment going around Vietnam now in regards to the current group of Expats, many newcomers (1-2 years here) who live in Vietnam. Many longtime Expats and Vietnamese would agree with this sentiment as well.
I understand that Vietnam can be a challenging country to live in. I understand that the culture can take awhile to get used to. What I do not understand is the constant whimpering, whining, ridiculing of the Vietnamese, and blaming others, particularly the Vietnamese, for your own personal problems.
I have friends who have left Vietnam but still like it here. They all plan to return when the economic environment improves. I can understand that. What I do not understand is why the whiners are still here in Vietnam.
Please do all of us a favor and choose another country to fail in. Vietnam’s needs winners, not losers like you so “Get out!”
